2012 cold air intake & aftermarket tuner

I just bought a 2012 2ss Ls3 ,RS : I also purchased Flowmaster axle back exhaust and am currently looking for a cold air intake system. However, some cold air intake systems require a tuner due to the large amount of air flow that come with certain models such as Airaids . If the cold air intake is to good, the OEM program will try to over compensate for the large volume of air by dumping to much fuel to compensate, this will result in a rich mixture. An aftermarket tuner/program is recommended, but I have zero experience with them and am concerned that the current aftermarket programs are not up to speed yet with the 2012 model year.
Comments please ????

He has a 2SS/RS with the m transmission, which means he has a LS3 Engine. The 1SS and 2SS did not get a new engine like the V-6's did. So there is stuff out there for both the LS3 and L99 engines.

Your engine is new, different story. Plus your engine sucks balls for modding. The headers are actually part of the heads themselves, so aftermarket headers are out of the question. The only real mod you could do to that engine to see some serious gains is go FI.

We have intake systems for the 2012, both the V8 & V6 & Supercharged. None of our systems require a tune and they will not throw a CEL. Let me know if you have any questions, I would be happy to help!

No idea why people buy v6s and want to mod them to compete with v8s. IMO just save money and start with the v8. A turbo v6 gets the same rwhp as a tuned LS3 lol.

Thanks Bill: after doing some research, your untit seemed best for my 2012 2SS, LS3 , because it takes in ambient air from front fender well and your box ix completely closed, insulated as well as the tube itself. PS Thanks for the free shipping.
